On the night of January 20, 2022, I dreamt I was pregnant. In the dream, I was a surrogate for another woman who happens to be a personal, real-life friend of mine. Ironically, she was my surrogate as well. In the natural, a surrogate is "a substitute, especially a person deputizing for another in a specific role or office" (Lexico). Most often we think of surrogates as surrogate mothers, which is what the dream depicted.
